When your head is on backwards, where do you see?
If your lungs begin to wilt like mine, how will you breath?
You can't drop your past without digging a hole.
The sky opens up, and my pulse drops.
Always plummet when I see your rain.

No one has your back in a bar full of strangers.
No one takes your blood pressure at a college play.
No one takes your hand when you need it most.

If Lola could see this now, we'd have to stitch her back up.
Dragging your thimble across the blackboard, don't drink from that cup.

When your legs turn to arms will you lift the ground?
Dig her up and polish her clean.
Sharpshooter behind door number one. Monty Monty Monty

You're not supposed to laugh at this part, it's where
The general and jester are bridged. Sunny unity of character.
Just blowing in the breeze

    My Interpretationthis song sounds like an anxiety disorder. i should know, i've had one. a seriously bad one. it's bit unclear exactly why though with lyrics such as "if lola could see us now, we'd have to stitch her back up, dragging your thimble across the blackboard, when your legs turn to arms will you lift the ground, dig her up and polish her clean, sharpshooter behind door number one monty." everything else seems clear to me. i know other songs talk about justins anxiety and college, i don't know, "blackboard"? lola, a girl he likes, a teacher? maybe. hmm. being to nervous to talk to her? dig her up? did he kill and bury her. lol. his dog he's sad about dying. i can't really tell. oh and the last 3 lines. fuck it i have no idea. haha. i just find a relation in parts that i hear.
